FIRST PERIOD WORCESTER MOULDED CORNUCOPIA

England, c1755-6, 2 Painter’s Marks Verso : 3 Parallel Lines, & a “4”

 

 

 

The spirally moulded horn shape wall pocket painted in blue and white with the Cornucopia Floral pattern with flowering prunus branches, below a flowerhead and leaf-moulded border, the verso twice pierced for hanging, and with 2 painters’ marks : 3 parallel lines, one longer; and a “4” like mark

 

Note :

Worcester made cornucopia wall pockets from c1755-60, right after which latter date, they mysteriously seemed to go out of fashion.  These wall pockets were originally quite expensive, and offered both singly and in pairs (right and left). They came in both colors (very rare) and blue and white, and two sizes : about 8-9” and 11” – the prices affected more by color than by size.  All pockets were always very well painted.
